Spiritual Expansion is the topic of this day.
How are you doing my friend? My dear sweet friend.
It is my prayer that you are feeling calm, confident, and connected to God.
In my last post, Training Your Brain to Destress, I offered the affirmation, "God loves me, God cares for me, and He is giving me all good things for my spiritual expansion."
Spiritual expansion is always greater/increased confidence/faith, which is basically love.
"There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love." ~1 John 4:18, New Testament, The Holy Bible, KJV
I love that scripture so much!
Spiritual expansion is relearning the love that we are. The love that we came into this world being and that was cast out by conditioning.
Hate is the opposite of love, and so it must be fear. I never say the "H" word except when I am teaching about it because I have no hate. Therefore, there is no reason to use that word. Nevertheless, hate is taught to us, and grows with practice. It is a powerful emotion, and word but love is above it.
Love is above it all.
Love is for giving to the self, and to others.
It is my humble opinion that people who hate, have certain hate for themselves, and it is displayed outward towards others and certain things.
Hate is the strongest negative emotion there is, and love is the strongest affirmative emotion that gives energy.
Do you love yourself?
Crazy question, I know! But the craziest part is that if you dislike, or even hate yourself, you are not only breaking your future and life, you are draining your energy.
What I am trying to say in all of this ramble is that God does love you, God does care for you, and He is giving you all good things. Anyone can and will see this if he or she is willing to stop hating, and start looking for the lesson in the things they proclaim to hate.
In my humble opinion, the lesson is always faith, love, and patience usually towards the self. The lesson truly is an exquisite focus on trusting God.
It is human nature to focus on what is wrong, for example:
A person may hate themselves because they aren't good-looking enough, rich enough, slim enough, smart enough, or young enough and so he or she is so extremely focused on that hate, that they are too busy to appreciate what they are, and what they have.
Appreciation is the truth.
Appreciation feels so very close to love, and when we focus exquisitely on what we appreciate, and/or love, we can and will feel so much more joy.
There is so much good in this world than there is bad, and so no one can say that I am asking anyone to ignore the bad, I am just saying focus on what is right!
Appreciation is the key!
Love is the truth!
With an exquisite focus on appreciation and love for others and the self, anyone can and will expand spiritually.
You just gotta practice, and never give up!
Affirm and remind yourself of it daily, hourly, and moment by moment.
I have a very joyful life, and it is all because of God, and the blessing from practicing appreciation, love, and never giving up on God or me, EVER!
Connecting to God is a constant practice, and that is my authority and power in which I choose.
We have a choice, and if you do not believe you do, you just may not believe in yourself.
If you do not believe in yourself, you just may not appreciate and love yourself enough to.
That's all I got my friend!
Appreciation and love for God, for life, and for you!
Hocus, pocus, focus!
Practice makes perfect permanence!
That's what life is all about!
God bless you, my dear friend.
Ever praying for your calm, confidence, and connection to God. That is the healing.
That is my passion, my purpose in serving the Lord.
May God bless you with more authority and power to focus on your benefits and blessings.
